Arid Mesa Discussion

zephyr_chang on Bolt Seeker *WIP* plz crit

There are many 1-ofs, which is generally not the best way to go about building a consistent deck?

There are also just too many cards that flat out do not see Modern play. Agree with previous post that you should use better burn/removal spells, including Path to Exile.

The land base, obviously, could use a huge upgrade just by adding fetches and shocks (Arid Mesa and Sacred Foundry) as well.

DarkEclipse18: No need to apologize! :)

The deck should run fine without Arid Mesa and Plateau, I'd just put two Plains in instead (or whatever utility lands you find helpful).

There is no budget replacement for Mana Crypt (there's simply no other mana rock that comes down as fast), but Inspiring Statuary can give you as much or more ramp in the late game. Chrome Mox could also do work but personally I don't like it much.

The two swords really are important here...I'd say that Sword of Feast and Famine is a must, but you could replace Sword of Fire and Ice with either Rogue's Gloves or Mask of Memory to replicate the draw. Nothing else can give the handy protection as easily, though.

Scroll Rack and Land Tax are both relatively unique cards - you could include Tithe over Land Tax and maybe Reforge the Soul over Scroll Rack?

If you include Tithe, you'll want to include Mistveil Plains to abuse Tithe with Sunforger ;)

I hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions you may have, and let me know how the deck plays for you! :)

Hey everyone,I didn't pull a second goyf so my backup plan is in action (trading the one I have). I'm REALLY looking for an Arid Mesa, preferably from MM17, along with anything else in binders that I may be interested in trading for. Thanks!

PS I'm dumb and if anyone can show me how to put a link to my binder, that would be great. I checked the tutorials and can't find how to do it from there :/

If you're running this competitively, some must haves: Boros Charm, Goblin Guide, Grim Lavamancer, Eidolon of the Great Revel,Path to Exile, and Rift Bolt. Your mana-curve seems way too high, although Archangel of Tithes would be great to board, on 20 lands you most likely won't be dropping her until turn 6. She also requires so much white mana...

Having a million one-ofs is great on paper but what you want to do is go for four-ofs of the best cards, and cut weaker/more costly ones. Monastery Swiftspear is crazy strong and should be a four-of, as is Lightning Bolt. Citadel Siege is awkward, and your Mana Confluences are gonna hurt much more than running fetches/shocklands would. Arid Mesa, Sacred Foundry, and Bloodstained Mire should all be in the deck as four-ofs.

Disenchant belongs more in your sideboard, as it's useless in maany matchups. Ajani's Presence is gonna save just one creature 99% of the time, and is not worth running. Phalanx Leader and Ojutai Exemplars should go, as well as Kytheon's Irregulars, too expensive and color-dependant.

If you're not running this competitively, looks good.

hey there, were you still interested in a potential trade? No worries either way, but I am still interested in the Arid Mesafoil icon and Goblin Guide
